In the early afternoon of Saturday June 29, 2019 you will get just that chance as Magnuson Park plays host to the wildest country-themed outdoor party in the Northwest, with a fitness side too of course. This is the weekend leading into the Fourth of July and we invite you to come out and celebrate Independence Day and the red, White and Blue a little early!
There will be…
A 5K (3.1 mile) run and walk entirely within the park.
Boot Kickin’ Relay In case you want a shorter but more country experience. Cowboy boots must be worn in the relay! The distance is 1 mile so get some friends together and kick up those boots!
